Probably not, and we wouldn't advise it. Our course is not about fitness level. It is about getting you educated on our program, how our gym works, the basic building blocks of CrossFit and some concepts that you may or may not be familiar with that will help ensure your long term success in our program. You wouldn't walk into a martial arts class and immediately ask to start working out with the black belt group would you? Same principle applies in our gyms.
"Yeah, but I'm really, really fit. Can I bypass this course?"
No means no. If you are really, really fit, we can scale up the workouts in the workshop and introductory workouts for you. We promise we can leave you lying on the floor, sore and gasping, even after a beginners' class.
Our regular group classes can be rather fast paced at times. Our coaches need to be able to focus on the entire group- not just a single individual who is remiss on a very basic concept or movement. We have found over the years that bringing folks into our reglar classes un prepared can be a recipe for disaster, injury, frustration or all of the above. We do not expect anyone to be ab expert at what we do after our on ramp sessions. It is our goal to prepare everyone with the basics and a good foundation so that further progress once classes start is a natural process.
If you have prior formal CrossFit training experience (at a licensed CF affiliate gym- not your garage) you may be eligible to skip our on ramp. Prior to signing up, just shoot us an email to let us know where you worked out previously, for how long and did you participate in any sort of formal introductory program. If you bypass the course, just know that if we determine that you would benefit by taking this course, you'll be asked to do so. Since you will already be a member, you will be able to take the course at no additional charge.
